Outright Games has teamed up with Atomic Cartoons, Stage Clear Studios and Cyber Group Studios to bring a new game based on Max Brallier’s best-selling books and Emmy award-winning Netflix series The Last Kids on Earth and the Staff of Doom. The game will be available for Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4 and Xbox One next Spring.
The game will take place in the world of The Last Kids on Earth where fans and newcomers alike can immerse themselves in an all new story with massive levels to explore and hordes of zombies to defeat, in up to four player couch and online co-op action.
The four heroes Jack, Quint, June and Dirk will be on the hunt for the missing pieces of the Staff of Doom and try to overcome Malondre the Queen of the Slime Monsters, as she seeks to summon Rezzoch the Ancient, Destructor of Worlds.
The developers also confirmed that the original voice cast from the Netflix series returns to voice their respective characters including, Nick Wolfhard, Montse Hernandez, Garland Whitt and Charles Demers.
Terry Malham, CEO of Outright Games, said:
“Along with Max Brallier and our partners at Atomic Cartoons, We are delighted that the collaboration with Atomic Cartoons and Outright Games is resulting in a very compelling game based on The Last Kids on Earth. (…) The Last Kids on Earth is a hugely successful book and TV series, and the story lends itself perfectly to an action-adventure game.”
Max Brallier, best-selling author, creator and executive producer on the series, added:
“While the adventures of Jack, June, Dirk and Quint continue on the page, it is incredibly humbling and inspiring to see them also take on new lives through the animated series, toys, apparel and now a video game, (…) I am extremely fortunate to be collaborating on the game with such talented partners who are helping my dream for this story come true.”
Matthew Berkowitz, Chief Creative Officer, Atomic Cartoons and Thunderbird Entertainment said:
“When we first teamed up with Max [Brallier] to develop The Last Kids on Earth TV series a few years ago, we dreamed that we might one day have an opportunity to bring the franchise to life as a video game, (…) Now we’re taking the Last Kids experience to another level with this game, and we are so excited for gamers around the world to play The Last Kids on Earth and the Staff of Doom.”
